The Reigning British Supersport Champion Records Fastest Session Lap At The Season’s First Test At Snetterton.

Jack Kennedy and the Mar-Train Team had a very successful start to their 2022 season campaign. Jack held off his Quattro Group British Supersport Championship rivals to top the opening official Bennetts British Superbike test at Snetterton, onboard the all-new 2022 season Mar-Train livery Yamaha R6.

The weather at the Norfolk circuit of Snetterton was glorious until Sunday morning, where the track temperature was much cooler, the Mar-Train rider showed signs of improvement in each session throughout the day, setting a blistering lap time of 1:51.234 during his final session of the day, which secured the Irish rider’s place at the top of the timing sheets.

We had plenty of track time and used the time wisely during this first test to get me comfortable on the Mar-Train Yamaha R6. It took me a little while to get me where I wanted to be – setting up everything with suspension, engine breaking, fuelling and throttle response but when we got there in the end the bike finally felt like mine. It felt like I had a motorbike I could really push the limit on.
We had some good pace towards the end of today and we ended up on a good set up. It was a very successful two-day test for not turning a wheel on the bike before and for me not riding a bike since the last Supersport race last year in October. We are happy leaving here quickest – I wasn’t sure we were going to do that as we haven’t tested at all this year. To sum it up, I am really happy and can’t wait for the next test at Donnington Park.
